Behind the Scenes - Spring Photoshoot
Take a sneak peek behind the scenes of our latest photoshoot. With new products to shoot and old favourites in need of a Spring makeover, we chose a stunning barn in Wiltshire to be our home for the day. The location provided a bright, stylish space with huge windows and a clever wall that could be changed from rustic wood to elegant panelling in a matter of minutes.
With a fantastic team including interiors photographer Marc Wilson, The Lounge Co. crew and the heavy-lifters from Grays Transport, we started the day (after coffee and a croissant of course) by shooting the new Paloma Chaise End against the wooden panelling. We’d painted it grey as we felt it would create a softer look; more calming and laid-back.
The First Shot
The grey worked beautifully with the tonal blues of the Paloma sofas. The Chaise, a new addition to the popular Paloma range, was upholstered in Vintage Velvet - Antique Ink, the 3 Seater Sofa in Washed Cotton - Nordic Dusk.
Love the look? We used Dove Grey Matt Emulsion by Home of Colour at Homebase. You’ll find similar colours in other DIY stores; just look for a pale grey with blue undertones. Alternatives we've found are Warm Pewter by Dulux and Farrow & Ball’s Manor House Gray.
The Great Wall Transformation
Thanks to the guys from Design by Timber (handily in the workshop next door), we were able to transform the elegant grey wall to on-trend rustic wood panelling in less time than it took to order lunch. You can see from our time lapse video just how quickly it all happened (and watch us enjoy our well-earned pizza!)
As well as shooting some brand new products, we gave a couple of our existing styles a fresh look for the new season. We chose our favourites from the emerging SS18 trends and gave them The Lounge Co. twist; making them relevant, and easy to reproduce in your own home.
Scandi with a Twist
The Scandinavian look has been a firm favourite for several seasons now. Think pared back interiors, a palette of white, grey and taupe and furniture and accessories with clean lines.
Spring 2018 has seen this trend get a splash of colour! The addition of lemon yellow to the understated, monochromatic colour scheme is akin to a beautiful ray of sunshine coming through the window. We’ve used this vibrant, zesty shade in the form of cushions, a floor lamp and fresh, seasonal flowers.
Green is always a go-to colour if you’re giving your lounge a Spring transformation. We decided to clad Rose, an old favourite, in our new Woodland Moss velvet.
We used a palette of deep greens and natural tones to create a botanical look with rustic overtones. Plenty of oversized House Plants bring life to the look (we loved the Rubber Plant so much, we’ve given it pride of place in our office.)
Finish with cushions and throws in neutral tones and an array of botanical prints in wooden frames. We found these gorgeous plant prints at Scandi-inspired homeware store Skandis.
